Towards Multi-Perspective Modeling and Simulation for Complex Systems

Mamadou Seck

The 2010 Summer Computer Simulation Conference (SCSC 10)
Ottawa, Canada, July 11-14, 2010


This conceptual paper discusses the role of hierarchy in complex systems modeling and simulation and discusses the difficulty of subsuming a complex system into a model having a unique hierarchical decomposition. After elaborating on the potential of multiperspective modeling and simulation, a first formalization of multi-perspective models is proposed.
